Feeling so far away from hubs:(

We are new parents, and lately I feel like he does anything he can think of to remove himself from me and the baby. Today is a classic example. Woke up at 8, hung out with the baby and I till around 9. Then he informs me he needs to chop up a tree in our back yard. Weird, but ok. Baby and I go on a 45 minute walk/run. When we get home he is still out there with the tree. Ok, maybe it's more tree than I thought it was. So baby and I hang out for the next 3 hours inside by ourselves. Then hubs comes in and explains he needs to now tale the tree branches to the recycling place. At this point I remind him I have to work at 4:15 and it would be nice if we had some kind of family time today. To which he responds with his usual "it's got to get done." I understand things need to still get done around the house. But when ge acts like this I feel like a burden on him. Like I am only here to tale care of the lo. I do not feel attractive, needed, or loved. I know I need to explain this to him later, but when I finally do get me and him alone time, the last thing I want to do is start a fight. Any advice?

Sometimes DH does things like that. I think it is because he isn't a big "play on the floor" person. He would rather go somewhere. When we go somewhere fun, he tends to give me and DD a lot more attention. Maybe it would help to go on a date or something together. Have ya'll been out as a couple in awhile? When did it start?

Lo was born at the end of December. The only time we've gone put together without baby was valentine's day. He has been acting this way for about a month and a half. I know money is tight, so I hate asking for him to take me out. But I need some positive attention coming my way.

He probably just doesn't feel like he can do much "baby time" because mom does most of it.
